Germany reaches over 50% of renewable energy in first quarter of 2020 for the first time

The German ZSW and BDEW announced in a press release that their preliminary calculations have come to the conclusion that Germany has used renewable energy for around 52 percent of their gross inland electricity consumption. In the statement, this change was mainly attributed to the industrial slowdown due to the coronavirus and the priority for renewable energy over conventional energy in the electricity network.
